Summary
In Virginia, there is an agency bearing the bland name of Technical Operations Support Activity (TOSA). Its mission is to find and eliminate those so dangerous to the United States that they appear on a document known as the Kill List. Recently added to the list is a terrorist of frightening effectiveness called the Preacher, who radicalises young Muslims abroad to carry out assassinations. Unfortunately for him, one of his targets is a retired Marine general whose son is TOSA's top hunter. Preacher has made it personal
Summary
The Kill List: a top secret catalogue of names held at the highest level of the US government. On it, those men and women who would threaten the world's security. And at the top of it, The Preacher, a radical Islamic cleric whose sermons inspire his followers to kill high profile Western targets in the name of God. As the bodies begin to pile up in America, Great Britain and across Europe, the message goes out: discover this man's identity, locate him and take him out. Tasked with what seems like an impossible job is an ex-US marine who has risen through the ranks to become one of America's most effective intelligence chiefs. Now known only as The Tracker, he must gather what scant evidence there is, collate it and unmask The Preacher if he is to prevent the next spate of violent deaths. Aided only by a brilliant teenaged hacker, he must throw out the bait and see whether his deadly target can be drawn from his lair.
